12-Month Agreement Defined
A "12-Month" License Agreement is available for the following communities: Austin Residence Complex I, Austin Residence Complex II, University Columns, University Commons and University Courtyard. A 12-Month License Agreement covers housing for fall, spring and summer semesters within a given academic year. A student on a 12-Month Agreement would move in during our Move-In weekend in August and would move out after final exams in July. A 12-Month Agreement does not grant the student twelve months of housing from the date the Agreement is signed. Students must move out of their assignment by the move-out date given in late July.

A "10-Month" License Agreement is available for the following communities: Hornet Village Suites, Howell Hall, KSU Place I, KSU Place II, University Village and University Village Suites. A 10-Month License Agreement covers housing for fall and spring semesters within a given academic year. A student with a 10-Month License Agreement would move in during our Move-In weekend in August and would move out after final exams in May. A 10-Month Agreement does not grant the student ten months of housing from the date the Agreement is signed. Students must move out of their assignment by the move-out date given in early May.
Payment by Semester or with a Payment Plan
We bill for our housing by the semester. The entire semester installment is charged to the student for fall, spring and summer semesters depending on the type of Agreement signed (10- or 12-month). Payment is due in full by the payment deadline as established by Kennesaw State University. If you are unable to pay in full by the payment deadline, there are payment plans available to you. However, please understand, payment plans are granted as a convenience to those families who need it. We also offer an option to split the payment over the course of several months. Payments made in the final month of each semester do not grant the student housing for that entire month. For example, a student on a 10-month agreement who makes their final installment payment in May must still move out of housing by the end of their agreement (24 hours after the last final exam for spring semester).
More information about how to request a Payment Plan will be available mid-June.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. I accidentally paid in full when I wanted to pay monthly. How do I get a refund?
A. If you have completed a promissory note and are on a payment plan with our department, you are expected to pay your monthly installments as dictated by your promissory note. If you mistakenly pay your account in full, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to start the process of issuing a refund for the payment. Our Housing Payments team will assist you in getting a refund for the payment you completed.
Q. What if I do not pay my bill on time?
A. If you are on a monthly payment plan, you are expected to make each monthly installment by the fifth (5th) day of each month. If you do not pay on time, you will receive a $50 late fee each month your payment is late. In addition to this, we do reserve the right to restrict access to your unit/bedroom if you become delinquent on your account.
Q. How do I know how much is due?
A. This depends on where you live. Students who live in Austin Residence Complex II or on the Marietta Campus can log into the Student Account Suite within Owl Express to see what you owe for Housing. Students who live in Austin Residence Complex I, KSU Place I, KSU Place II, University Village or University Village Suites can log into the Housing Portal to check their account.
